BYOC & The New Missouri ELA Standards

by Julie Knernschield | Apr 26, 2016

Given the number of calls the support center has been getting, I assume that everyone knows that DESE has released the new standards. As promised, we are doing our best to add them into BYOC as quickly as possible. We will be adding the new standards by department, with the first department, English Language Arts being added later today!

The new standards will be referred to as "Learning Standards" in the list of Missouri standards. In some cases you will see the same standards listed twice, one of the sets being the "Detailed" version. it is VERY IMPORTANT that you only add one of the sets, either the regular or the detailed version. If you add both you will have duplicate standards present making it very hard on your staff and making quality analysis almost impossible.

Here is an example of Regular vs Detailed standards:

Regular Version - 1 standard

ELA.K-5.L.1.A.K - In speech and written form, apply standard English grammar to:

- identify naming words (nouns) and action words (verbs)

- use plural words when speaking

- express time and space

- demonstrate the use of complete sentences in shared language activities

- use question words in sentences

Detailed Version - 5 standards       

ELA.K-5.L.1.A.K.a - In speech and written form, apply standard English grammar to:

- identify naming words (nouns) and action words (verbs)

ELA.K-5.L.1.A.K.b - In speech and written form, apply standard English grammar to:

- use plural words when speaking

ELA.K-5.L.1.A.K.c - In speech and written form, apply standard English grammar to:

- express time and space

ELA.K-5.L.1.A.K.d - In speech and written form, apply standard English grammar to:

- demonstrate the use of complete sentences in shared language activities

ELA.K-5.L.1.A.K.e - In speech and written form, apply standard English grammar to:

- use question words in sentences

 

Please remember to only add one of each of the standard sets. The reason we supply both is so that each district can choose what level of detail they want their standards defined at. We will continue to notify you as we add each remaining department's standards.
